Abstract: In this research, we analyze the impact of attending parenting courses on time use of parents and children, in different Italian municipalities. The courses were offered during the schooling year 2020- 21 within the framework of the social program “FA.C.E. Farsi Comunità Educanti†, supported by the Italian Government. The effect of the program was estimated through a before-after design with time controls for the period in which the course started or ended (the beginning and the end of the courses varied across cities). We find that attending the course increased the regular use of formal childcare together with parental awareness that child care services support working parents. Parents were more likely to watch cartoons with children and recognized indeed the educational contribution of TV but not of other digital devices.
